Rope Recommendations

Have a question. Need to buy a new slalom rope. I once bought a rope that said it had takeoffs for line lengths but unfortunately, the line lengths did not match up at all to AWSA lengths. If I buy a rope from Overtons or Barts that says AWSA approved or meets AWSA standards does that automatically mean it has the correct line lengths? Also, what do I get with a 10 section line or a 8 section line?

Lets dont call them "rainbow ropes" that could be misconstrued like the "tranny" thread One thread was enough for me!!

Want an accurate rope for the course any ideas?

A rope is a rope...unless you are being serious and it sounds like you are...then go buy a fancy one.

This rope will exceed your needs but last a long time.

The 10 section has a few more lloops to remove versus the 8 section. No offense intended, but you'll probably be fine with the 8 section.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Check out this thread from a couple of months ago

As I said there I highly reccomend Brenda at In-Tow. Great ropes at great prices.
